Hospitality to Refugees
St. Paul & the Redeemer partners with different organizations to help resettle refugees in their new life in the U.S. We provide home furnishings, a stocked pantry, and months of one-on-one mentorship.
For the third time, SPR will co-sponsor a refugee family in Chicago. From December through May, in cooperation with the Syrian Community Network, we will work with a family from Syria. Teams of volunteer visitors on Saturdays from 10am to noon are needed. If you would like to volunteer as a home visitor please contact Sheila Bator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: An online background check is required of all volunteers for this project. The cost is $10. If you were a visitor to the family from Eritrea this year, the Syrian Community Network will accept the clearance you received from RefugeeOne and there would be no cost involved.
SPR will be co-sponsoring a newly arrived family in 2017. If you're interested in helping out, fill out this form:
